The relettering of the Prologue with my new handwriting font is live! I made a font from my handwriting so the intro to the comic is more easily readable. The Keybound archive is now live! It is a visual archive and separated by storyline, so if you remember what the page looks like or what section of the story it is from, you can find it. There is also a new page dedicated to the news archive: each comic page will have the most recent news item (so new readers working through the archive won't miss out on appearances!), but if you missed old news you can still read about it. The news archive can be found here.
Keybound comic page 6. Agnet and Fyodor discuss his classwork as they walk along the path to the Keyp. Fyodor insults his classmate and tells his mother about magic tricks.
AGNET: Have you taken any more independent lessons?
FYODOR: Map-making, advanced Vergish, and Uppervil dance. Hendrik has also been teaching me magic tricks in exchange for tutoring him in Vergish.
His pronunciation is acceptable, but his conjugation is unspeakably bad.
Magic tricks? I thought you couldn't do any magic until after you bind with the Key?
That's not strictly true, but the tricks aren't real magic anyhow-- just sleight of hand and redirecting attention. Shall I show you?
